Default Beauregard of Rebel Ridge - My Setter Pup

Here are some photos of Beau, my ten month old setter pup. He is a grandson of Shadow Oak Bo, and this guy is built for speed! Beautiful tri-color fella. He is a big boy, taller than most of the setters that I've been around. Goes about 60 pounds.

He has taken to training very well. He is totally gun-broke, holds points steady to wing and shot, and retrieves OK for a young dog. He is whistle-broke, and we've started on Whoa-breaking. My wife is happy that he is doing very well at heel. Coming from a field dog like Shadow Oak Bo, he's a big runner and he has a ton of energy, so we get a big run most every morning on the farm, and then a big play time in the evening at our local dog park.

Rebel Ridge is a local guy's private kennel here in Kentucky, and I have been working Beau out quite a bit at Gasper River Kennels (Setters and GSP's), also here in south central Kentucky.

I love this guy, and can't wait for this fall's grouse season.

Dave

What a handsome pup he is! Is there some Llewellin blood in there?

Yes, Dean, I believe there is some Llewellin blood in his gene pool.....

Chances are good, John! Very, very good! In fact, I may bring him along on the spring trout trip in May!

Beau is my first setter, having been a lifelong Lab guy. Labs are like the Swiss Army knife of dogs and I've used mine for ducks, upland birds, and grouse, but I am sure enjoying have my first true English Setter bird dog.

Good luck to you, Eric!

Dave

Proud dog-dad and understandably so. Looking forward to meeting him in May or this fall. Lucky for us there are enough couches at the Oxbow for the dogs - hopefully they'll be willing to share with us.

Cheers,

Jay
